I graduated from school today! Hooray! You know how sometimes you get really sentimental and feel so many things at once you get an ice cream headache? That’s how it is for me now but I’m going to soldier on because it’s time to blog about Disneysea and spread the joy.
I never get tired of riding the Disney Resort Line with its Mickey windows
One of the first things we did was to get popcornThere are lots of popcorn carts around Disney, but each one is unique to their zone and has different flavours. It’s a popular trend among visitors to carry around popcorn buckets, which come in a lot of special designs.
My friend already had one of the Duffy-themed buckets, so all she had to do was refill it at a lower price!
Inside was milk tea-flavoured popcornThe next flavour we got next was white chocolate, so we ate sweet popcorn the whole day. There’re savoury choices like curry and soy sauce too! Which, come to think of it, I should probably try for a change the next time I ever go.
In the spirit of all things Duffy, we went to the souvenir shop in the American Waterfront zone that sold Duffy character merchandise! He also comes with his sweetheart Shellie May and the recently introduced grey cat Gelatoni.
Lots of people carry around their Disneyland paraphernalia all over the place, whether they’re kids or grown ups. They either pin two dozen mini Duffy bears on their bag, or hold one big cuddly doll right in their arms.
Still not enough Duffy. So we went to the Cape Cod Cook-off for some cakeThis cake set I got came with a free souvenir plate (the one it’s sitting on in the picture), which I thought was a really good deal. I think I actually got it more for the plate than the dessert itself.
Also! If you go to Cape Cod Cook-off you’ll get to eat while watching a mini musical (with Mickey and Minnie and the rest of their friends in tow), so if that’s your kind of thing I’d recommend it
Snacking again. I don’t think I ate a proper meal when I was at Disneysea; I lived off small treats from around the place and it was more fun that way because Disney snacks are out of this worldAnyway, these were special churros for the Easter season!
Some slightly pointless backstory: I’ve hated churros ever since the one time I ate them on a road trip and got sick on the way up a winding mountain. Seven years later here they are coated in sugary sweet gimmicks, and my phobia immediately goes out the window. Thanks Disney!
At Tokyo Disney Resort you’ll see lots of people dressed up for the day, and sometimes you get really impressive Disney garb—like this boy who came as Donald Duck together with his mother and her two dozen stuffed Donalds.
Newer characters like Elsa from Frozen are a hit among the young girls.
And sometimes there’s a baby Duffy bear toddling around with his parents too.
Before going home I went to the souvenir shop! I couldn’t get much because Disney goods are generally expensive (and it already cost me a week’s worth of meals to get into the park), so I just bought back this box of cakes for my family
